ABS sensor extraction?
Okay so installing new struts/shocks and some lower control arm bushings didnt go as swimmingly as planned. The clevis bolt on the driver's side was not succumbing to any of our persuasion, including hellfire, brimstone and an assortment of clamps and BFH's.

During all this, the lead for the abs sensor was damaged. That would be the hellfire part... Anyway, we tried to remove the sensor from the corroded hub and it promptly broke off in there. Total fail. Now I have abs, eps, bas and trac lights on. Buying a new hub is not an option right now. How do I go about getting that thing out? Anybody else been buggered by this?

On a lighter note, bilstein hd's ride extremely well! :jump:

Pull or pry it out. I wouldn't drill it either.
